NATIONAL COLLECTION WEEK IS
NOVEMBER 16-23 2020
Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Boxes bring The Good News and Great Joy to children all over the world.
Last year our family was able to share The Good News of Christ at our church in Cucuta, Colombia with almost 100 children and parents as we used the OCC Gospel presentation. Karen taught using the same poster used all over the world while Kevin translated. Benjamin and Andrew helped act out the different scenes from the Gospel.
As many of you remember from last year, we shared how exciting it was to share about Christ, and also seeing the faces of excitement as the children opened their shoeboxes.
Last November while on home leave, Benjamin, Andrew, and I were able to pack several shoeboxes with our cousins, aunts, uncle, and grandmas.
2020 has been a challenge for everyone all over the world but we know that it is not going to hold us back from packing OCC boxes for Sameritans Purse. It may look different by ordering online but we will make sure it is completed. We will be packing boxes with the same family as last year but from our own homes.
Did you know that YOU can pack a shoebox online from the comfort of your own couch? Yes! You can!
If you are not able to make a shoebox donation yourself, you can click on the link below and have a wonderful OCC volunteer pack one for you at the OCC warehouse. Kevin and I visited the warehouse in Boone, NC and it is awesome! The volunteers make sure the boxes are packed and add in any extras that someone may have forgotten.
If you have made a shoebox in your home or online, we want to hear your story.
The boys and Karen will drop off our family boxes Friday at Sharon United Methodist Church off Wyckles Road in Decatur IL. This is their 16th year collecting boxes.
You can find a drop off location near you, anywhere in the US at the link below.
Finally, follow Franklin Graham on Facebook. Sunday at 8pm EST you can watch a short animated film of a little girl who received a box and the Good News of Christ.
Thank you for helping bring Joy to children all over the world who will most importantly hear the Gospel!
Kevin, Karen, Benjamin & Andrew
